9/1/11 1:10pm Est Update: Thank you to all the people that haave been checking out my post=)

Seems currently there is nothing more i can add to this post until we get an actual date of the restock. TP is pretty much sold out everywhere and people are selling them for triple the price online. Hp.com seems to be our last chance for getting it for $99/$149.

It is confirmed Hp will be producing one last batch for sale before the end of October.

All i can say to you guys is to keep yourself posted and make sure you sign up for the notifications at hp.com.(If you haven't, link is below)

Also keep yourself updated, I suggest you to follow the two representatives from hp on twitter, they have been keeping everyone updated on the status of availability and will be answering questions also:

Well I wasn't going to update until I got news of when the touchpad were going to come back in stock. I will be updating all at once. I know it's going to be pretty close, might be earlier than expected, maybe early October, so keep your ears open and keep up with the news

Our Best buy here was giving out tickets one per person last saturday, I went down at 4:00 AM and got my touchpad at 9:00 AM...Worth the wait...When I went down at 4:00 AM there were 13 ppl in front of me. Am glad it ot was one per person ;).

Yipee am just loving it. Worth every penny and effort

Ok, so I finally got through to HP small biz this morning (3rd try, called right at 8am EST at their opening and it still took 40 minutes to get a rep)!!! I placed my order on Saturday 8/20 and received a confirmation Sunday 8/21. When looking at the order the original ship date was listed as 8/22 (obviously didn't ship)..so I got nervous and have been trying to call all week. The rep reconfirmed that my order was 'locked in' but said it may take them 2-4 weeks to ship the backlog of orders. She also restated that they planned to cancel anyone's order placed after 4am CST Monday. Hope this info helps on the search...I wouldn't expect the HP site to show inventory for a while if they're having this much trouble clearing up the order backlog.

Hopefully they get things sorted out fast, at least taking back-orders. I'd just be satisfied i know i got my order in, even if i got to wait a few weeks for it to come.

I'm ok as long as they aren't putting me on about delivering on my order. Heard a lot of stories of other retailers cancelling, which is why I sat on the phone. I am hoping that dumping half a million WebOs devices into the market will spark some (if only minor) developer interest.

I went to my local bestbuy about 3 pm today. (I had a golf tournament) They were sold out. Salesman said they had about 60 this morning and sold out in 90 minutes. There must have not been a lot of people going to check on these. Buffalo NY

Well, I am sure everyone has there own stories but BB has screwed me for the last time. I was there on Saturday and they said they were returning theirs. Then on Sunday they decided to sell them so I went up there and they said I missed them by 30 mins. Yesterday I called and they said more would be in today so I was there first thing this morning and they told me to come back at lunch. I spent my entire lunch there before someone told me to come back at 5 as the truck wouldn't get there until 4. So, I called just now to verify and they said they put them out AT 4 and they are all gone... again. ARGH!!!! When will this nightmare end???

I saw on amazon selling the 16gb version for 273.99 from third party vendors. Price has gone up. They should have put limit on one per customer because these vendors bought and dried up the supply. It's about demand and supply.

Update from Kheelan.. still some hope who haven't got the confirmation email from Kheelan.

TOUCHPAD UPDATE: HP told me this morning that there are shipments coming, and that they will continue to manufacture the Touchpads through the end of September. Unfortunately, no one I have spoken with is very forthcoming with hard numbers, but it does sound like plenty of these things will be available. They just aren't making any promises as to exactly when and how many will be distributed at a time.

Stay tuned...

August 23rd, was an interesting day to say the least. There was an unexpected and overwhelming surge of traffic, phone calls and orders that caused technical issues with our site and some confusion throughout the entire supply chain.

The big question everyone is asking is why did the site say there was availability and now there is a back-order? The answer is that when we received the new pricing from Hewlett-Packard, we were told that there were 50,000 or so units available through distribution. An hour later we were told they were gone but that another shipment is on the way and is due to arrive the week of September 12.

I got a confirmation from HP that my once cancelled order is now confirmed. What is going on with them? Now I have been on the phone waiting for a rep for over 20 mins to verify this. I hope it is true but my order went in after their "cut off" time so I have no idea if I am getting it or not yet. Once canceled email and one confirmed... which to trust??

I did not. I stayed on the phone for 65 mins and never got through. I finally had to get back to work. I did open up a HP Chat with a rep but they told me they do not have access to this information and can only assist customers inquiring about product selection. They then directed me to call HP - LOL - so no help there either.
